Steeler third-rounder Dri Archer gives the Black and Gold an offensive X factor who rattled off the combine's top 40 time (4.26) and is expected to be used creatively in Todd Haley's scheme.

"It's going to be a big role, Archer said, per the Akron Beacon Journal, "but I'm just going to do whatever I'm asked to do. Play receiver, play running back, helping special teams. Whatever they want me to do, I'm going to do it."

Fantasy Impact: 

Even the author of this story pointed out how Archer will likely struggle to eat up significant snaps at running back after never seeing more than 14 offensive touches in a season at Kent State. He should see time returning kicks and maybe some special plays from time to time on offense to try to get him free in space.
